Acral lentiginous melanoma: A brown, irregularly-shaped macular lesion of the unexposed skin that undergoes progression to nodular melanoma. It is found in patients older than 60 years, is more common in Africans and Asians, and occurs on areas of the body lacking hair, such as the soles, palms, fingers, subungual and periungual areas, and muscosal surfaces. #dermatology #beintheknow #skin  *Information thanks to AAD

Acral lentiginous melanomas occurring on non–sun-exposed sites (eg, nails, palms, and soles) (shown) comprise a disproportionate number of melanomas in Asian, Hispanic, and black individuals.[1] Acral lentiginous melanoma in situ is a diagnostic challenge; therefore, combination clinical-histopathologic-dermoscopic evaluation is essential for accurate diagnosis and early detection.[5] It is typically treated with surgical excision, but the ideal surgical margin remains a topic of debate
